The H2O Careers suite of programs provides high school students with an understanding of the work required to deliver superior water and resource recovery services to the community.
This long-standing program focuses on hands-on learning and careers in water while providing students a chance to use their creativity and problem-solving skills to solve real problems that water professionals face.
Due to the popularity of this program, and a desire to engage older students, there are now two programs available.
Water Works Academy is a program that introduces students in 9th-12th grades to the work done at a water utility. Students learn about basic infrastructure, meters, water towers and water quality.
H2O Engineers is a more in-depth program where 11th-and 12th-grade students dig deeper into the engineering principles that help a water utility function. Students learn about flow and pressure, infrastructure design and planning, and the role of technology and innovation in the water sector.
These programs are one-day sessions accommodating groups of 15 – 20 students. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to obtain additional information for your group.
